Invention Research Task: Mamori Mouthguard
Who made it: Mark Dillon
A young Irish inventor, concerned with the lack of attention paid to head injuries in full-contact sports, has invented a mouth guard with built-in sensors that can tell someone on the sidelines when a player has received a serious — yet invisible — injury. ”
("Traumatic sports injuries tracked, prevented with high-tech mouth guard - NBC News")
Who will it affect?
Cons:
Why I Chose This:
This is just a prototype for right now. There is no cost for this invention quite yet. The nice thing about this is that Dillon saw a need for this type of technology in the world, sports specifically and created it. This now can be tested on real people and players, then the cost can be decided based on how well it works, cost of production, demand cost, etc.


This mouth guard is equipped with “a tiny wireless accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer along with a wireless chip and battery… the inertial sensors constantly monitor for movement and relay that information in real time to a laptop on the sidelines” ("Traumatic sports injuries tracked, prevented with high-tech mouthguard - NBC News").

Why?
Dillon was inspired to make Mamori because of the concussion problem with Gaelic football in Ireland, along with the increasing problem of players playing with concussions and getting hit again.
How does it work?
("The Mamori Mouthguard Can Help Detect Concussions from the Sideline")
("The Mamori mouthguard: Connecting the teeth and the brain")
Here's a video:
I chose this invention because it sparked my interest, It was unlike anything I've ever heard of and extremely innovative.
Also I have many friends and family who play contact sports who have gotten some pretty serious concussions, with this device the severity of some of their injuries could have likely been avoided.
"One of the hot-button topics in sports today is centered on concussion prevention and what can be done to reduce concussions for players in any league"
("The Mamori Mouthguard Can Help Detect Concussions from the Sideline")
This invention will seriously help players in the NFL, especially with all the controversy being sparked right now over concussion prevention. Not only in the NFL though, as I said before, the inspiration for the device was Gaelic football as well as ice hockey.
Parents and coaches will also find this beneficial because it increases safety for the players which is the most important factor when it comes to any sport. The health and safety of players should come before anything and now with this invention, concussions are now detectable when they were virtually invisible before.
("Technology solving the NFL’s concussion problem is a no brainer, right?")
Cost:
("Pix For > Dollar Sign Icon Png")
("High-tech mouthguard that can detect concussions")
Based off of the advanced technology as well as the demand it will likely be expensive.
Its not actually for sale yet, only a prototype.
This mouth guard is bulkier in the mouth than others. May be slightly uncomfortable in comparison to other brands.
